‘Happiest’ Day of ‘My’ Life?

I’d have to draw from a period of roughly 7 years the many moments, hours, & sleepless nights over where & when I learned just how cruel some people can be. Including those who ought never be on such a list of individuals. I learned at the same time that it was now my sole responsibility to protect love & nurture myself & to never relegate another with this precious duty. But I had to learn how to do it, what it was gonna take for/from me to get it done the right way & continue throughout all my days. Meanwhile, I had to stop caring about a few choice individuals, abruptly & completely. ‘&’ about what the ‘shift’ was gonna look like to others. Believe it or not, you will lose people when you set out on such a journey to take care of yourself. And a journey it has been! It ain’t no point A to point B … & it ain’t for sissy’s, let’s be clear on that… it’s a straight up journey … a beautiful one … at times difficult, exhausting, & lonely but worth every minute of it. Truly. I know myself now and will admit I had no clue before. I am kind to myself & have a good sense of what’s good for me (& what is not). I have no problem saying NO. I’ve too learned that ‘no’ is a complete sentence, no explanations. This is one of the greatest things I could’ve done for myself, my health & my sanity. Without the unnecessary outside negative energy draining interferences over this crucial period of time, I’ve become quite the human being … that ‘I’ love & appreciate. What another may think of me otherwise … is none of my business. #bloganuary
